HOPE INC. is a non profit organization committed to assisting families with children with physical and intellectual disabilities . Our mission is to provide mobility, educational and recreational opportunities for children with disabilities and their families.
Everyone (including the able-bodied) participate in wheelchairs! This levels the playing field for the children with physical disabilities. We have two divisions: one for manual chair users (who have upper body strength and can self-propel their chairs) and one for power chairs.
We currently play soccer indoors. We also offer recreational opportunities like bowling, rollerskating (in their wheelchairs), swimming and arts & crafts. We do other games to encourage sportsmanship, communication, teamwork and increasing self-esteem and confidence.
